Playing the Course
On the outer fringe of western Scotland, there exists a very special place. In the southwest corner of the Mull of Kintyre, where the movements of sea, sand, wind and grazing sheep have intertwined over countless centuries, a landscape has been crafted; perfectly and naturally suited to the purest form of the royal and ancient game of golf.
It’s here, nestled against the rugged dune-lined shores of the Atlantic Ocean that you’ll find a new chapter being written on golf. This is Machrihanish Dunes – the world’s most natural golf course.
Hugging the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, Machrihanish Dunes shares breathtaking views alongside the adjacent Machrihanish Golf Club links.
Designed by David McLay Kidd, these two world-class links course, along with the village at Machrihanish provides visitors with a golfing destination rivalling the best in the world.
With the mighty Atlantic providing a dramatic backdrop, golfers can enjoy the game as it was meant to be played. Here you’ll experience golf the way it began.
This is the basic essence of the game, golfer against the elements, himself, and nature. The 18-hole journey features no less than six greens and five tees at the ocean’s edge.
